On my way back across the heath the other day I passed the climbing tree – as I often do. It is sort of the Picadilly Circus of our part of the heath – hard to go anywhere without passing it. It was early evening and it was silhouetted rather spectacularly against the sky.
Down below, look how its twisted branches have been polished by the hundreds of children who have climbed over them…
..and is that a little hare I see crouching at the base of the stump, his ears laid back?
And for your video of the evening, three fluffy and noisy moorhen chicks and some brown ducklings.
